If you think that age slows you down then you’ve obviously never met Alla Illyinichna Levushkina. She’s a surgeon at Hospital in Moscow, and despite being almost 89-90 years she still performs 4 Surgeries every day.
Alla lives in a apartment where she cares for handicap nephew and her cats, she has been a surgeon for 67 years, and although she’s already performed more than 10,000 surgeries, she has no mind of slowing down. “Being a doctor isn’t just a profession but a lifestyle,” she told Lite FM when asked if she had any plans to retire.
“If I stopped working, who is going to perform the surgeries?” She’s thought to be the oldest surgeon still working in the world, but what’s the secret to her long life? “‘I didn’t find any secret to longevity,” she said. “I just eat everything, laugh a lot and cry a lot.”
